Founded in 2005, Rusty Waters Apparel is a rust belt clothing company
that designs for the cities that have inspired them: Cleveland,
Pittsburgh and Youngstown. Founded by Youngstown natives who now live in
Pittsburgh, RWA is the "Regional Original" in rust belt designs.
Rusty Waters creates original T-shirts for Youngstown, Cleveland and Pittsburgh. Each t shirt design showcases the unique characteristics of the community and history of each region - as well as a few sports teams that they unconditionally love.
Over the years, Rusty Waters Apparel has had over 37 different shirt designs, been on display and in the gift shop at the Heinz History Center, published in The New York Times, as well as the Pittsburgh and Youngstown Business Times. They have also been apart of many local events such as local beer fests for Commonwealth Press, Stoney's Beer, I Made it Festivals, Vex Fest, Pabstolutely and even threw their own Jello wrestling event called The Rust Belt Rumble.
